Year 3 had a fantastic time at Slimbridge Wetland centre. During the pond dipping session they made some exciting and amazing discoveries in the ponds, including Ramshorn snails, blood worms and baby fish. The children had great fun splashing about in Welly boot land and finished the day by feeding all the various birds.
Year 3 had an inspiring trip to the Leonardo Da Vinci exhibition at Bristol Museum. We all enjoyed exploring the museum and finding the ichthyosaurus fossil! We were all mesmerised by Da Vinci’s detailed sketches and invention plans. Inspired by Da Vinci, we took part in a portrait workshop and drew each other’s emotions.
Fuss Free Foodie!
Year 3 had a wonderful time learning how to make couscous salad and panzanella. We followed the recipes carefully and learnt all about the healthy ingredients. We learnt lots of new skills like grating, chopping, measuring and mixing. Everyone enjoyed a delicious banquet back in class, relaxing after our hard work!
Shine Sports Morning
Year 3 had an exciting morning taking part in a variety of sports activities organised by Shine. They enjoyed rugby, football, lacrosse and tri-golf!

Year 3 Science
This week Year 3 celebrated the start of their new Science topic: How does your garden grow? by planting their own seeds. We each planted a sunflower, cornflower and some lettuce. After learning about photosynthesis, we know that our plants will need air (to get carbon dioxide), water and sunlight. We also discovered why leaves are green! “Leaves are green because they contain a chemical called chlorophyll,” explained Micah. “Chlorophyll absorbs sunlight so plants can photosynthesise to make food,” said Aaron.
Welcome to Classes 7 and 8
Shaun the sheep workshop

The Night Box
Year 3 have been so inspired by the book ‘The Night Box’ that some children have created their own night boxes and stories.
Patrick made the ‘Big Dipper’ star constellation as part of his homework project on Stars.
We had fun using the mini-abacus to make our number bonds to 100.
